Once upon a time, there lived a young man. Correction: there live a young, brave, and handsome man. At the age of 18, he ventured out into the world to find his place. His place at that time, just so happened to be in the United States Marine Corps. Lucky for him (or perhaps lucky for him and her), there was also a young, cheerful, and also brave lady who struck out on this same path.
The two enlisted from different states and ended up on similar paths. Having graduated recruit training together, but not knowing it. They went through schooling together for nearly a year before they actually "met". After a yearlong friendship, the two became young lovers. Stationed overseas in Iwakuni, Japan under mixed pretenses.
Both found in the other something they never even knew they were looking for. A partner, a confidant, a friend that never falters. Eventually, something even greater than they even knew was possible. A spouse, and a parent to raise their children with.
On January 4th, 2007 in Iwakuni, under Lucky Stars; the two were married and thus began the best story of their lifetime. Forever and always.
